The impossible shot made possible

Shuttle Atlantis and IIS with the sun as a backdrop. The local weather guy on channel 4 showed this last night on the broadcast and sent me the link (thanks Chuck). I thought taking pictures of lightning was difficult.

If I remember the details correctly: this picture was only possible from a six mile wide slice of Earth for 6 tenths of a second. More details on the Web page with the images.

I am in total awe.
